My Kodak AIO printer will print a test page, it will copy but itt will not print from the computer itself. The printer is going back and forth like it is printing but sometimes I get a totally blank page and sometimes I just get the horizontal line. A couple times I got a vertical line from an e-mail. Any ideas? Makes no sense since it prints the test page and prints out copies that you lay on the copy glass.

During certain cases, you might have completed the physical integration perfectly. But still, you might not be able to accomplish the printing. This could be due to the absence of a driver installed in to your system. The problem could easily be averted, if you are installing the driver corresponding to the manufacturer. You might ensure that the version corresponds to the exact version of the printer series also.
